Pavlo Beznosiuk

Baroque Violin

Pavlo Beznosiuk has secured a formidable reputation as one of Europe's most respected Baroque violinists with a busy international career as a soloist, chamber musician, concertmaster and increasingly as a director. In the mid 80's he was involved in pioneering work in the use of Renaissance violins with The Parley of Instruments and was a key member of the groundbreaking Medieval ensemble The New London Consort. He has a long association with the Academy of Ancient Music and is a frequent Soloist/Director with the group, performing throughout Europe, the USA and the far East. As musical director of the Avison Ensemble, he has completed a groundbreaking recorded survey of the music of Charles Avison, all of Corelli's published works and a recording of Handel's Op.6 Concerti Grossi which was nominated for a Gramophone award. Solo recordings include Biber's "Rosary" Sonatas, Vivaldi's Op 12 Violin Concerti with The Academy of Ancient Music and Christopher Hogwood, [2 recordings on viola of Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante (with Monica Huggett and Rachel Podger) and world premiere recordings of solo works by Walther and Westhoff.] His recording of J S Bach's solo Sonatas and Partitas (on LINN records) was described as "exquisite" by The Independent on Sunday and his interpretation of Vivaldi's Op. 8 Violin Concerti (including "The Four Seasons") with the Avison Ensemble, (also on LINN) has been praised for its depth and originality.
